The Houses October Built is such a good title, though...

I checked out Dead Silence, pretty good. I liked it more than Honeymoon even though Honeymoon has less "that's not how humans act" moments.

Regarding Honeymoon, I don't know what I'm missing, but I just wasn't scared by it. I don't watch much horror so, maybe it was a more for people who understand the tropes. I'm going to check out Dead Silence and Coherence.

@bananasbananasbananas: @cornbredx: Yeah, I forgot to mention that this is meant to be able to play games. The problem with posting to multiple places is I forget what I have and haven't noted.

I don't know if it's any better, but I originally was spending $80 and $70 on the CPU and memory respectively, Although I did just have one 8gb stick of RAM.

If you're so inclined, my budget max is $680. I realize it won't be an incredible build. Thanks for catching my mistakes!

Thanks ya'll! Very nice, I'll post a link to an edited build if anyone wants to look at it.

Edit: @ll_exile_ll: What headphones are you using/How much did you spend? I'm probably going to start off with speakers. That just seems safer. I'd still like to know what ya use.

Hey, I made a post on Reddit, but I only got one reply and it didn't answer all my questions. Like Pat, who recently posted, I'm relying heavily on pcpartpicker, so I could use some help.

First off, has anyone ever not purchased speakers? I don't really see an upside to them unless I'm going all out. So, is it just personal preference? Like, if you don't like wearing headphones, then get speakers.

I already got some changes from my first part list. The CPU was changed with a recommended to be overclocked and a cooler was added along with a better GPU. I'm guessing I probably need a cooler.

Also, I'm unsure about most (all) decisions. So, feel free to change anything. Oh, also, the monitor is $20 until 7/9, no pressure.

@syz said:

The charge labeled against Giant Bomb is that they should somehow be held morally accountable for perpetuating inequality within the industry. There is a necessary presumption here that something deliberate is happening, despite there being no reasonable evidence put forth. Meanwhile, others are musing that (presuming gender, sexuality, and ethnicity are held equal) it is not at all morally questionable for somebody like Dan Ryckert to be hired for this position.

I have yet to see somebody claim that they should have just hired a random woman or minority to fill the position just to say they did. It is simply that the fact that that did not happen does not convey an act of racism, or sexism, or speciesism--anyism. The accusation is logically unsound without proof that Giant Bomb's hiring process was somehow unfavorable towards applicants who did not happen to be heterosexual white men. As the quote we keep seeing puts it: merit. If those protesting the situation cannot disprove this merit, they have no grounds to put forth accusations (although this does not, in turn, qualify one for receiving death threats).

Right, and at what point do we hire the "others" because if we work purely off merit it will be white men all the time forever and ever.

EDIT: I didn't mean to imply you're racist (or something) with the "others". I'm just tired.

@counterclockwork87: Yeah, as @truthtellah wrote, if you are willing to weather the storm there are those willing to stand behind you. If it's too much for you that's understandable, duck out. Pick your battles, find out what works best for, and I wish you the best.

Shout out to @sarisa for being pretty cool.
